Hit Director Carlo Caparas Doing A New Version Of 'Angela Markado' With Andi Eigenmann

CARLO CAPARAS is a bonafide box office hit maker who did blockbuster action films and massacre movies. He’s the one who made Kris Aquino a box office queen with “Vizconde Massaacre”. He and producer wife Donna Villa of Golden Lions Films have been hibernating for sometime. Now, we’re glad that they’re back to producing movies and the cameras are grinding once again for Carlo.

His comeback project is a new version of his unforgettable revenge story, “Angela Markado”, which was filmed by no less than National Artist Lino Brocka before starring Hilda Koronel. Carlo wrote the original komiks novel which is about a girl who was brutally raped and manhandled by five men. She later takes revenge and turns the tables on them by hunting them down one by one.

The lucky actress chosen to play the avenging “Angela Markado” this time is no other than Andi Eigenmann, who has not been assigned a new teleserye on ABS-CBN for sometime now. Her last show was still last year’s “Dyesebel”, where she played kontrabida to Anne Curtis. Her recent forays into the big screen were not so successful. Her two movies shown this year, “Tragic Theatre” and “Your Place or Mine”, produced by Viva Entertainment, were both big flops. Here’s hoping Direk Carlo’s magic touch is still working and will help revive her acting career.
